Doncaster MP breaks wrist

Have your say

LABOUR leader Ed Miliband has undergone an operation for a broken wrist following an accident while hill walking with his wife Justine.

A spokesman for the Doncaster MP said he suffered the injury ten days ago on a walk in Devon.

He only discovered that he had a fracture when he attended the accident and emergency unit at University College Hospital, London on Friday and underwent an X-ray.

He returned to the hospital yesterday for a minor operation to re-set the wrist.

Mr Miliband has now returned home, and the injury will not prevent him attending Margaret Thatcher’s funeral at St Paul’s Cathedral on Wednesday.

It’s not the first time his wrists have made the news.

Last year, body language expert Robert Phipp said Mr Milliband used loose wrists to make him look ‘friendly and appealing’ but not powerful.
